Get some steamy passion onto your e-reader this fall and keep away the winter chill. Meet Shannon Aguerri – street-cop sent to cool her heels in the countryside after one-too-many maverick missions.

Moved out from the city, Shannon discovers there’s more going on in the sleepy country village than meets the eye. The son of a local aristocrat arouses suspicion of drug crime activity… but his widower father arouses more animal instincts!

Could she really mix with the British royal family? Can she risk her heart and career on yet another high risk unauthorised investigation? Can she get justice for an innocent boy? Dare a kid from the gutter dream of being a countess?

Feisty London street cop Shannon Aguerri walks a dangerous line between her methods and justice. When the bosses lose their nerve, she is transferred to green pastures to play out the role of a routine village cop. In Fleetworth-Green she encounters signs of people and drug trafficking and homes in on billionaire criminals.

As a loner she has attracted men but nothing has stuck. When she meets Spencer, the hunky and widowed Earl of Bloxington, there is an immediate rapport between them. Their social differences mean nothing to their passion and need. Already in the mix is an upper class rival who has long plotted her way into the Earl’s bed. The jealousy is an evil shade of green and the anger is a violent scarlet. Will she stoop to blackmail to thwart Shannon and Spencer’s romance?

Often inhibited by a sense of duty and honour, Spencer is slow to reveal his feelings. When Shannon confronts him with the need to choose between her word and that of her rival, he does not immediately support her.

All the same, when they are forced together to carry out a desperate kidnap rescue mission, their love is stronger than everything ranged against them.

  • “Move over Mr Grey – there’s a new Earl in town! Shannon’s Law is dramatic, mesmerising and incredibly sexy.” Jenny Marston, UK.
  • “Emma Calin writes brilliantly, and this book has a little bit of everything: mystery, action, comedy, romance, and some very steamy sex.” Caitlin M. Smith, USA.
  • “The woman is sexy, fearless, caring, and blunt as hell. Her joking attitude towards life kept me laughing throughout the whole story.” Ronda Tutt, USA.

  • “This book very much reminded me of the comedy Hot Fuzz, (city cop goes to country, finds huge conspiracy), except instead of a cop-comedy, this is a cop-romance.” Owen Robinson, USA.

Double #1 Best Seller for Emma Calin’s Romance Novel & Companion Cookbook

Shannon's Law & Cop's Kitchen

Four weeks after the launch of Emma Calin’s steamy action-romance SHANNON’S LAW and its companion cookbook COP’S KITCHEN, we are pleased to announce that both books hit #1 slots in their best-seller categories on Amazon and reached the top 10 in several others.

SHANNON’S LAW still sits at #1 in Kindle book category British>Humor & Satire and reached #7 in Women’s Fiction>Mystery,Thriller & suspense>Crime and #9 in Literature & Fiction> Erotica>Humorous.  At the same time, the cookbook reached #1 in Food & Drink>Regional & International>UK & Ireland.

With more than 50 reviews worldwide and an average of 4.5 stars Emma is delighted that readers are enjoying the mystery, loving the romance and entering into the social comedy implicit in Emma’s work. She says this is why she writes.

Reviewers say:

“Move over Mr Grey there’s a new Earl in town”

“It’s unusual to find a steamy story that also has good plot and characterization, normally you have to sacrifice one to get the other – the fact that Shannon’s Law had both was one of the key selling points for me. The plot was fascinating and developed well, without being predicable or obvious. The author even managed to throw in a few plot twists that I wasn’t expecting.”

“This is a funny book; the heroine cop is mouthy and hilarious and someone quite new in police-lit.”

“The police side of the story is wonderful, as good as any crime writing that I have had the pleasure of reading and reviewing.  If you are like me just skip about 60 pages of steamy sex scenes and the book is a hit. If you like steamy sex scenes then guess what, you are going to love the book also.”

“This book truly had a little of everything. There were steamy sex scenes (not too bawdy), action & some hilarity, murder, soaked cats & a horse trampling the vegetable garden.”

“There’s a ton of action, a good dose of humor and more importantly, a fun, twisting plot that will hold your interest.”

 

Giving away some Love in a Hopeless Place

Emma Calin has announced the launch of the paperback edition of The Love in a Hopeless Place Collection.  To celebrate, there is a giveaway of 3 print copies on Goodreads – this will be drawn on the 18th December, so copies should be posted out before Christmas.

Love in a Hopeless Place Collection

The book contains a five separate titles – three short stories and two novelettes, in a bargain bumper edition: Sub-Prime, Angela, Escape to Love, The Chosen and Love in a Hopeless place.  These stories are not classic romances as such but are about human need – our quest to love and be loved, for respect and acceptance.  They are gritty and explicit tales that deal with modern issues in post-recession societies. Described by Emma as Social Realism for the 21st century.

The Kindle version of the book has been well received, here are some reviews:

The Love in a Hopeless Place Collection of 5  novelettes and short stories in one edition

The Love in a Hopeless Place Collection of 5 novelettes and short stories in one edition

Five star reviews:

“Everybody needs love, everybody wants to be loved, Emma Calin explores love for the ordinary person. She cleverly weaves a tale of people in situations that seem hopeless, and with keen insight showed the true face of helplessness and hopelessness turning into despair.” August 2013,  im1rarebird on Amazon

“I loved the way she managed to make a taxi ride so totally unlike anything you might imagine and the way subjects like disability and payday loans, both very topical and current subjects, were brought into the writing. And love in the most unexpected places as well, and it just goes to show that things like this could happen to any of us. Give it a go – buy this and enjoy!” Bookworm, August 2013

 “Emma Calin writes with perfection and is a master of the short story. You will want to keep this collection in your bookshelf forever.” Adina Luca, October 2013

Launch of Escape To Love by Emma Calin

Escape To Lovve front tablet and slides

Monday was another day to celebrate here at Gallo-Romano Media as Emma Calin’s new suspense/romance appeared on the Amazon bookshelves all round the world in Kindle and e-book format.

ESCAPE TO LOVE is the third in a five-part series of gritty urban short stories and novelettes – the other two are due out later in the Spring.

As with books one and two in this series, Escape To Love Kindle Edition comes with a FREE 80 minute audiobook download link  – making the story accessible to folk who prefer to listen as well as to those who like to read.

Description

Even in the barren wasteland of urban decay new green life is possible. In Nature and in Love,that which can be, somehow finds a crack, a corner or ledge and grasps its chance of life. A woman on the run from domestic violence with no one but her vulnerable autistic teenage child as a companion, lives in isolation and fear. While her hand to mouth scenarios are played out in the shadow of a threatening suspense, a story of crime and love unfolds around her. She cannot risk her child. Her own longings for love and romance have to take a poor second place. When the fallout from a prison break, a hero rescue and a murder mystery crash through her door and into her need and loneliness, it is no longer a crime story. It is a question of when Love in itself is a crime and how far a woman will go in its name and for those she loves.
